Nobody warned me!!

The day I left my parents house, I was overjoyed that apart from my newfound freedom, I would never ever hear dad-isms again such as: "It is my house, my rules!" Nobody bothered informing me that some odd years on, I was still going to be exposed to similar conversations that only do and go downhill fast and furious:

Am I speaking a language you do not understand?!

Because I said so, that's why.

What part of NO do you not understand?

Do NOT look at me in that tone of voice.

Enough is enough!

Am I talking to a brick wall?

I am going to count to ten...1...2...3...

This is your last warning, young lady.

Do not make me stop the car!

Just wait until I get you home.

Stop crying or I will give you a reason to cry.

If I did not love you so much, I would not punish you...I would let you do whatever you wanted...

Nor did anyone bother to tell me that I will still react the same way...and I that I should rather not for I will be and am suffering the same consequences...

That is true for me, too. Kind of like it, though. I particularly like the last picture for it's familiarity.
